I buy my eggs from an elderly couple whose house is a walking distance from my house.  They live a simple but very joyful life.   I love going there to ask her some gardening questions.  Today, her husband came out to show my 4-yr-old his 40 year old asparagus patch and a little wren house.  I love to see what new flowers are in bloom in her English garden each time I stop there.  She makes my day.  I value taking time to talk and get to know my neighbors.  I value building relationships by bridging the generation gaps.  I don't ever want to be in such a hurry that I don't have time to stop for a chat.  I treasure having people in my children's life who would take time to listen to them and to hold their hands....I am blessed and I am rich.
